The Convergence Point

Because Story is independent of medium

If you’re on the internet, you’re spread across a few platforms.

I’m on Facebook, (If you like my work, or live in a town I cover, look me up), Twitter, and The Convergence Point. These are places where I place the Steven Fletcher flag and mark my own corner of the internet world.

The Internet.

We all have these places.

The problem is, those places are just that. Places – distinct, separate, zones where our names come up. They don’t talk to each other, or acknowledge that the others exist. When someone searches that name, they’ll find one of our outlets.

But only one. The viewing flow stops there. But, if our sites talked to each other, that traffic would circulate, and bring more people along the reading trail.

Our social media presence can drive people to longer, more in-depth articles on a site armed for deep writing. Our deep writing then, can drive back to the stream-of-consciousness, this-is-what-I’m-thinking-about social media.

It’s a big happy circle of noise, where traffic keeps going around the mulberry bush, as it were.
